Suha* at home with her sister Manar*, 2.5, and their mother Mariam*, 26, Taiz, Yemen

Suha* is 8 months old and suffering from acute malnutrition when we meet her in a health centre in Taiz, Yemen. Her mother, Mariam*, 26, has two children, and her husband is unemployed, so getting enough food is a daily struggle. The family’s usual meals consist of bread, tea, fried dough and sometimes rice but they can’t afford any vegetables. Mariam’s older daughter, Manar*, 2.5, also suffered from malnutrition when she was a baby. Mariam brought Suha to the healthcare centre supported by Save the Children in a district in Taiz governorate. There, the health workers examined her, taking her measurements and weighing her to check for malnutrition. Once diagnosed, Mariam was provided with Plumpy Nut, nutritional supplement supplies for Suha, and she was also given advice on how to support her.
